Cybercouch - Poem by Linda Ori

Where do you go when your world falls apart,
When words that were said burn a hole in your heart,
Inside you're bleeding, you can't stop the pain
It simply engulfs you like cold winter rain;

What do you do when you don't understand
How your heart can be broken by one careless man,
You thought he would love you 'til your dying day,
Instead he walked out leaving nothing to say;

Where do you run when frustration sets in,
You simply can't stand one more day in your skin,
You're tearing your hair out and can't sleep a wink,
Your nerves are all frayed and you're pushed to the brink;

You run to your PC and pour out your heart,
While being distracted by a button called 'FART'
Get instant advice with a cumulative score,
Hey - that's quality shrinkage, who could ask for more!

    Heart in shreds, but head up and sense of humour intact. That's a quality response! And quality rhyming verse and images to boot. You're a tough and realistic lady - but that pain still cuts. Enjoyed this a lot. xxx jim (Report) Reply

    Hi Linda, Interesting poem. Funny last verse. Yes, these days of the computer actually can help many people. So nice how you can just talk to people instantly and though you may not know them in person, they understand the human condition. :) Take care. Sincerely, Connie Webb (Report) Reply

    Hee hee. Oh that fart button is annoying isn't it? But I think most of us here can relate to your words Linda.
